    Not bad for a fat chick

    I rode 33 miles, from Akron to Cleveland, along the lovely Towpath Trail on my Electra beach cruiser. I was so beat, but it's cool to know that I could do it.

    Not too shabby at all. I'm not sure I could ride that style of bike so far. Kudos!

    Excellent! Pretty soon you won't be calling yourself a fat chick.
    You don't have to fetch it. You don't have to feed it. Just ride!

    Well done you

    Proving once again, it's not the bike but the rider that accomplished great things.

    Fat Chicks Unite. You ROCK
    Better, stronger, faster.
    If you don't like it, go on the internet and complain.

    That's very impressive! Congrats!! I don't think I'd make it 5 miles on a beach cruiser.

    How's the trail? I've been searching out new rails-to-trails and towpath trails to try, having ridden the GAP-C&O Canal trails twice.

    That's fantastic!

    I lived for two years in Wooster, popped out occasionally to Cleveland and Akron, wish I was a cyclist back then!
